On tap at the local pub.

Pour is copper in color with 1 finger of thick white foam. Nice lace grips the glass the entire way down.

Smell is hops and citrus very basic for a pale ale. I'm convinced after all these years that having the true "basic qualities" of a pale ale is not a bad thing!!!

Taste follows well from the smell. Hoppy bitterness with citrus notes on the finish. Great fresh, clean, and crisp taste! PDG holds up to its name here!

Overall a good example of the style by. A brewery that's growing in popularity in my area. I'll be buying more of this.
